Todd Frazier Hits Home Run For Guest Bat Boy With Down Syndrome (Video)

This week it has been hard to focus on some of the better sports stories around the sports landscape because of the horrifying events that have been taking place all across the nation. We have shown players and teams coming from all over to show their unity and support of the Boston community, but this is another feel good story that could surely bring a tear to your eye.

Teddy Kremer, a 30-year-old with down syndrome, was a guest bat boy for the team’s game against the Miami Marlins at Great American Ball Park on Thursday night.

Kramer asked Reds third baseman Todd Frazier to hit a home run for him and, sure enough, Frazier hit one over the fence.

As you can expect, Teddy was thrilled that Frazier hit a home run for him and his reaction to the play was amazing. Here is Frazier’s home run and Teddy’s reaction to the hit:

These are the moments that make us all love sports. When we need an escape from the harsh reality of what’s going on in the world, it is incredible to see that the greater human good always prevails.

This is a moment that Teddy will never forget.
